OSAT Blog Hop | Fabulous Florals

Hello and welcome to my blog. My name is Lisa and I am the maker behind Sweet Paper Studios. If you happen to be new around here, thanks so much for joining today (and to those who are regular visitors)! :)

Today's blog post is all about Fabulous Florals for our monthly One Stamp at A Time Blog Hop!

I have some fabulous projects to show you today! I am really excited about these ones because they are a birthday gift for someone really special to me (though I can't say who because they follow me and my blog). I cannot wait to give these to her!

I just love this little floral arrangement that I created using the Daisy Punch! In fact, I love it so much that I am going to make one for myself too! Full project details are below.

Daisy Arrangement Details:

  • The little pot with grass came from a local dollarstore for under $4.00, and then I added in some of the white florals that I had left over from another project as an accent colour.

  • Each daisy has six (6) layers and there are five (5) daisies in total on this arrangement.

  • Each daisy was punched individually using the Daisy Punch and Rich Razzleberry Cardstock.

  • I used Rich Razzleberry Ink and a Sponge Dauber to add in some shading to the middle of each petal. You will be able to see the slight contrast in colour in the photo below.

  • Each petal is slightly curled using a bone folder and each layer is adhered together using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

  • For the centre of each daisy, I cut a small yellow pom pom in half (thanks kids!), and pulled the pieces apart until I was left with a bit of a mess! The beauty in this is that you can then use these little frayed pieces to create the centre of your daisies! Using multiplurpose liquid glue, I adhered small pieces at a time in the centre with the help of my Paper Piercing Tool to help guide the position. You can add as much or as little as you want until you get your desired effect.

  • Each completed daisy is adhere to a piece of floral wire using hot glue. It is helpful to have a small wire cutter on hand to trim the floral wire as needed. This can be purchased from your local hardware store.

That's really all there is to it! Once you have all of your supplies, you are ready to create. The makes this an easy project that can be created using a variety of colours.

The best part of the Daisy Punch is that it not only coordinates with the current Daisy Delight Stamp Set, but it will also coordinate with the new Daisy Lane Stamp Set coming out on June 4th as part of the new Annual Catalogue!
